On Satuday, March 14th, North Carolina governor Roy Cooper closed all public schools beginning on March 16th. The Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School System had been tirelessly working to set up a plan of action in case the schools were forced to close. Their planning has covered just about everything imagineable...including:
* the teaching of students will continue, and it will be done on-line
* students who's family do not own a computer will be loaned a hand-held computer
* for students in families that do not have internet access at their dwelling: internet hot-spots will be set up
* students who qualify for a free or reduced-price lunch are being delivered these meals to their home by school buses
